HEMLOCK VEILS was the first of my novels to be officially published. Originally published by Swoon Romance in the fall of 2014, it was (and still is, hopefully) intended to be the first in a three-book series. However, after a great run, the publisher and I decided to amicably part ways. Right now, it's undergoing a huge revision and with much hope, my agent will find a fantastic home for this beloved adult paranormal romance (loosely inspired by the eighteenth-century fable Beauty and the Beast but set in modern times and laced with more twists). 

Want a little more? Here's a blurb:

When Elizabeth Ashton escapes her damaging city life and finds herself in the remote town of Hemlock Veils, Oregon, she is smitten by its quaint mystery; but the surrounding forest holds an enchantment she didn’t think existed, and worse, a most terrifying monster. The town claims it vicious and evil, but Elizabeth suspects something is amiss. Even with its enormous, hairy frame, gruesome claws, and knifelike teeth, the monster’s eyes speak to her: wolf-like and ringed with gold, yet holding an awareness that can only be human. That’s when Elizabeth knows she is the only one who can see the struggling soul trapped inside, the soul to which she is moved.

Secretly, Elizabeth befriends the beast at night, discovering there’s more to his story and that the rising of the sun transforms him into a human more complex than his beastly self. Elizabeth eventually learns that his curse is unlike any other and that a single murderous act is all that stands between him and his freedom. Though love is not enough to break his curse, it may be the only means by which the unimaginable can be done: sacrifice a beauty for the beast.

VEIL OF THE ROSE will be the second installment to Henry Clayton and Elizabeth Ashton's journey, taking place only months after HEMLOCK VEILS ends. Faced with new dilemmas and darker magic, Henry and Elizabeth must fight even harder to save what they have. In the way HEMLOCK took inspiration from Beauty and the Beast, this second book is loosely inspired by the beloved and classic tale of Sleeping Beauty.

Stay tuned for information on the HEMLOCK VEILS series as a whole!
